Proud to Support the Senior Games
Right at North Central Twin Cities is proud to support the 2015 National Senior Games, which are being held this year in Bloomington, Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
Beginning in 1987, and held every other year since, the National Senior Games are the world's largest multi-sport competition event for individuals 50 years of age and older. This year 10,000 athletes and 20,000 family members are expected to attend. With a Baby Boomer reaching age 50 every eight seconds, a promoting a healthy and active lifestyle has become increasingly important.
By 2020, Americans ages 55 to 64 will increase a staggering 73 percent. This rapid rise in our older population presents challenges for our health care system and aging services. It is imperative that we work to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for seniors. The Senior Games movement offers proof that everyone can improve the quality of life, no matter their age, by staying active. We encourage you to come see it for yourself during the 2015 National Senior Games!
During the 13-day event, there will be more than 800 sporting events spread across 26 sports venues throughout the Twin Cities metro area. For more information about this year's event visit the National Senior Games Association website.
